Eleven years ago, the University City High School students who now make up the classes of 2013 through 2016 were just infants or toddlers.
This year, these young people are part of the University City High School’s Community Service Team known as “Serve U.” The group sponsored a book drive as part of a larger effort inspired by United We Serve, a nationwide service initiative that aims to inspire volunteers to develop charitable “do it yourself” projects.
On Tuesday, Sept. 11, Serve U volunteers met to sort and deliver donated books.
The books benefit the “Take It Libraries” that are strategically placed throughout the School District and city. As the name suggests, anyone can take books from Take It Libraries to have and enjoy, free of charge.
